The First Layer Cracks
“Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that
is not gold.” - Leo Tolsoty
And then the stone moved. It wants to be discovered, the stone can’t hold the pressure.
The temperature rises and the rock cracks. It is golden. It overflows. It begins to cool and takes shape then it petrifies. What shape does it have? What will it be? What can it do? and
what now?. It cracked open. It must be carefully brushed and kept a secret. These findings must be kept safe. These findings are documented and recorded, first as a quick sketch to remember and then on canvas.
A new stage of the research begins.
